6 Reasons To Visit Bali In 2019

6 Reasons To Visit Bali In 2019

Bali is one of those places that you just fall in love with the moment you step foot on the island, which is why I have visited this Indonesian destination more than once. 2019 is the perfect year to finally tick off that bucket list trip to Bali, and here are six reasons why.

Stunning beaches

Of course, an Indonesian island is bound to spoil you with their beaches, and Bali is certainly no different. However, it isn’t just about the rich collection of beautiful beaches in Bali. There is a lot more to offer. The landscape itself is a sight to behold, with mountains in one corner and rice paddies in the other. Bali is also home to several coral reefs, making the underwater sights just as fascinating as the ones on land.

Delicious food

I have already confessed that the food in Indonesia is some of the best I’ve ever eaten, so Bali is a real culinary delight. Some of the best restaurants in the world can be found on this little island, including the award-winning Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud. Head to Seminyak where you’ll find the aptly nicknamed ‘eat street,’ if you want to experience a real range of Balinese cuisine.

Mystical temples

Many people flock to Bali to catch a glimpse of some of the many mystical temples on offer here, and they rarely go home disappointed. Some of the must-sees include Besakih Temple, Goa Gajah, and Lempuyang Temple. As well as the temples, however, there are also plenty of yoga and meditation retreats. If you want to visit somewhere for a spiritual awakening, then you really can’t go wrong with Bali!

Hidden gems

The second time I went to Bali, which was seven years after my first trip, I decided to explore some of the hidden gems a bit more than the usual tourist hotspots. I put together a list of 11 things to do in Bali that you won’t find on TripAdvisor, and it’s still one of my most popular posts today. One of the best things about this island is you can spend your time doing touristy things, heading off the beaten path, or a mixture of the two.

Balinese people

Bali and the Balinese people pride themselves in their hospitality, which is what makes it such a genuinely lovely place to visit. You will always be welcomed with open arms by the locals, and you may even go home with a few new friends. Stop and chat to the restaurant owners, taxi drivers, and market stall holders to truly enhance your experience here.

Now or never!

Since 2006, the number of Australians going to Bali has risen by 546% – and that’s just Australians! The sad fact of the matter is, Bali is becoming more and more tourist-centric as the years go by. If you want to experience a slice of paradise, then you need to go sooner than later, before it loses some of that charm and is packed full of crowds instead.

Have I convinced you to pack your bags and head to Bali yet? Or have you already visited? Let me know in the comments if you’re planning a trip to Bali for 2019.
